Please tell us your store’s story.

Robin Laino is the owner of The Quilted Nest, which opened in 2011. Robin said, “We have moved three times on the same street to improve our size and location. We are currently housed in a 1928 ‘lobby’ area of the old Collingswood Theater building. The unique features of our space lend itself to the craft and bringing the past into the more modern world of quilting.”

Robin, Monica, and Linda are friendly, helpful, and very knowledgeable. The shop isn’t just a “fabric store” – it is a place to go to share ideas, get help, take classes-it is a community of quilters. Oh-and they have great fabric, notions, and machines!
